Help your students plan a project that connects to the community. Don't let the cost of books, supplies, or travel get in your way.
Start with a Learning to Give lesson and inspire student action to address a community need. The Learning to Give mini-grants range from $250 to $500 with a simple, yet competitive application process and priority given to those who use social media to share their plans, discuss ideas, and reflect! #LTGMiniGrant #Teach1
